As one of America's biggest fashion brands, DKNY, or Donna Karan New York, makes a ton of great dresses. Started in 1989 in New York, DKNY was intended to be a more affordable alternative to the Donna Karan prestige label. The brand was acquired by the Louis Vuitton group a few years ago, but it has not lost a bit of its unique appeal. In the following article, you'll find five top dress picks from DKNY.
The world famous department store Lord and Taylor carries the DKNY Long Sleeved Sweater Dress, which originally sold for a very reasonable $79 but now goes for only $53. The dress comes in smoke grey and has a glittery body that comes down to just above the knee. You'll find a short ribbed V-neckline, as well as ribbed trimming on the cuffs and hemline. The sweater dress also has two front slit pockets on the top of the skirt and a small self tie belt.
If you're looking for a dress better suited for parties or clubbing, then make sure to try this one on, which you can buy now at Bloomingdale's for $139. The dress comes in black and is made of a rayon and spandex mix. It has a scoop neck, cap sleeves, and an elasticized waistband with a built-in grosgrain ribbon belt. The dress is in a simple pullover style and has tons of sequins all over its lined body.
This one is another party-ready dress, but is a little more costly at $345. Available at Saks Fifth Avenue, the dress also has allover sequins with a red top. You'll find a wide round neck on this one with a sleeveless body, self tie, and short back zipper. The dress is fully lined in viscose, and is made of a 93% silk and 7% elastane mix for a bit of stretch. This dress also has a removable belt, and measures a reasonable 36 inches from the shoulder to the hem.
This is one of two great dresses available from Net A Porter. Selling for $295, this one is made of a stretch ponte material in red and has boldly cutout shoulders and a simple hook-and-zip fastener on the back. Unless you're feeling particularly bold, you might do well pairing this one with leggings or tights. It comes to the mid thigh and would go well with animal print pumps and bold jewelry.
This dress is a slightly more elegant option. Going for $275, the dress comes in a soft grape satin. It has a rounded neck with a cape overlay on the back split, with small cutout shoulders. It's a slip-on, and it comes down just below the knee. Net A Porter suggests going for a cocktail look with this dress, matching it with dark accents and gold jewelry.
